*This album is meant to run congruently, and flow as one conceptual story. The Intros and songs are indexed for identification and individual access purposes. It runs a little over 38 minutes, and is fun to listen to on headphones, so please sit back, relax and ride The Lightning Chain.
Thank you to the wonderful musicians I’ve had the pleasure of working with over the years, I missed you all during the Covid lockdown, but did get a few songs out of it. Thanks to Anna Kraus for helping to co-ordinate this project, and making it so that I could get it out to you.

This album was recorded “live off the floor” in March 2023 at The IsoNest, North Vancouver. It includes a few wee tics, pops and hisses that a “live” recording can reveal. I didn’t want to compromise the feel to edit out any small glitch. It’s just a few microphones, a voice and an acoustic guitar, The way these tunes were conceived. I’ve played many of these songs over the years in various bands with different arrangements and recordings, but this is back to the Woods!
